Rockefeller Archeological Museum, Jerusalem, Israel

The Rockefeller Archaeological Museum, situated in a magnificent white limestone edifice in East Jerusalem, houses the extraordinary collection of historical antiquities

Unearthed in excavations conducted in the country mainly during the time of the British Mandate (1919-1948). The Museum was opened in 1938.

The Rockefeller Archaeological Museum contains thousands of artifacts arranged in chronological order, ranging from prehistoric times to the Ottoman period, including a 9,000-year old statue from Jericho, gold jewelry from the Bronze Age, and much more.

Forty-eight historical black-and-white photographs of archaeological sites have recently been added to the permanent exhibition. The photographs document the pioneering archaeologists’ extensive work throughout the country in the first decades of the twentieth century.
